What's your view?

After a busy, rushed start to the weekend, I finally have time to relax. If I could get the stinkin' photo to upload, I'd show you my view of he chickens scratching around in the yard, my feet up, and a nice glass of iced tea next to me. But since the technology won't cooperate, you'll just have to imagine it.

In the "what's new" department - I got some new, spiffy glasses. Several people have said that they make me look really smart. I'm not sure how to take that...

New Family Member Update

Day 3:

Bogey has jumped right in to the routine - yells for his dinner right along with the Captain, found the toy box, is first to claim the highest perch on the cat tree, and is almost-but-not-quite wrestling with the Captain.

And best of all, the Captain was sprawled in my lap and Bogey plopped right down next to him, snuggled up and went to sleep!

I. Am. So. Happy.

The Colonel

The new kitten has arrived. He's a little on the timid side, but he's coming around. He jumped into my lap this morning, and I did hear some purring too.

Katrina so graciously created this as an announcement:

Seriously, it's like having a little black leopard slinking around!

He was already named Bogey, but we're not sure if we want to keep that name. (Well, actually his first name was Brittney because someone can't tell the difference between an exclamation point and a colon. And then the new-graduate vet didn't bother to double check before "spaying" him. So this poor dude has both a neuter scar and a spay scar!) But anyway, we'll probably end up calling him Colonel Bogey, because I love a good British march.
